I should have made cookies much earlier in October, but first I was too busy taking autumn photos and then we were outside playing in the leaves instead. Oh, and I was making pie the other days. It must have been something about that hurricane, or maybe that jack-o-lantern that Hannah carved on Monday night, because on Wednesday I really got thinking on cutout cookies.
Although the cookies were cut and baked on Wednesday, the frosting wasn't stirred up until this afternoon. I picked the right day because there were four eager kids here to frost and decorate after school. After dying the icing green and orange, and filling a few small bowls with candy corns and chocolate chips, we set to work.
